Some options are a.) find some time to type your essay at the library b.) type your essay in the small computer lab at the back of your teacher’s classroom; when you’re ready to print, you may have a library pass.

Wednesday, Oct. 1: Today we read poetry out loud in poetry groups. It was a lot of fun! It’s too bad you missed it, but there’s really nothing to make up. Have you turned in your pre-Columbian literature essay yet though? That’s a MUST-DO!

Thursday, Oct. 2: Today we went to the library. Students who were unfinished with their essays’ final drafts typed and printed in the library. Our teacher collected our pre-Columbian literature essays. You’ll need to turn in each of the following documents: the thesis graphic organizer (for pre-Columbian literature), the outline, the first draft (should be well-edited), and the typed final draft. Give it directly to your teacher please. Remember that we also turn in our vocabulary list every Thursday. Make sure you show yours to your teacher and say, “I still need a grade for this.”
